Clean, worn hotel. The carpet really needs to be replaced and there were a lot of cigarette butts outside near our patio. The grandkids had fun in the clean pool as I sat on the balcony and watched them play. Air conditioner worked well, we were glad for that as it drowned out the noise of other guests.

My third stay at this hotel in about as many years. Unfortunately standards here have slipped noticeably. First let me say much that was wrong wasn't exactly the hotel's fault, as I was there on a Friday night. I had an upstairs room on the rear building that faced the parking lot. The place seemed to be attracting a loud... More

Okay,this place could use some work, but for the price it was fine. It is near Hershypark. The pool was large and clean and the breakfasts was a pretty good. My family enjoyed the waffle maker. They changed our first rooms when we complained.

The rooms were dirty, smelled, and had no towels. The bathtub and toilets were disgusting. It was unsafe. there were people having BBQ's outside on their balconies. Told that police patrol area. What!

The room needed vacuumed and there was no top on the water tank on the toilet. However, we were there a max of 8-10 hours and most of that time we were sleeping. The check-in, check-out process was the quickest I've ever seen, but probably because I had already paid in full online. I'd stay there again if I was... More

Cool, clean and cheap. No complaints and I usually end up with a few when at this type of hotel. Did not have time to stay for breakfast. Our GPS directed us to the road behind the hotel, so if you are looking at the map make sure you stay on the Eisenhower Blvd side of things.

Great service. The lobby needed updating. It was a bit dark. The outside of the hotel also needed sprucing up. BUT, for the stuff that really counted, they hit the ball out of the park. The cleaning staff did a great job. Convenient to main attractions. I give you an A.
